At PAX East 2019, Obsidian showcased a brand new demo from its upcoming RPG, The Outer Worlds. In this 20-minute gameplay playthrough, Obsidian shows a small quest where the player is accompanied by 2 characters: Nyoka and Felix. This video also shows the game’s multiple choice dialog system, some of the weapons available, the looting and character customization system, as well as the general freedom that players will have in the game.
The Outer Worlds is a player-driven story RPG in which your choices affect not only the way the story develops, but your character build, companion stories, and end game scenarios. The game comes with a “Flaws” feature via which it tracks your experience to find what you aren’t particularly good at. This optional approach to the game promises to help players build the character they want while exploring Halcyon.
It’s worth pointing out that The Outer Worlds will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store for one year, meaning that it will come out on Steam in 2020 and not in 2019.
